This is a 12 week plan for the Cat 2 Sprt Level MTB Racer with a "A" Race at the end of the 12 weeks. By the end of this training plan, if followed, the racer will be competitive in the Cat 2 Sport Races that last 2-3hrs.
Start this plan 12 weeks before your goal race. Then follow the Cross Country Build Plan for optimal training for your goal.
Each week is between 7.5 and 12hrs of training. Most weekday workouts are 1.5 hr to 2hr. Weekend rides are 2-3:30hrs hrs. This plan assumes that the athlete has a 6-12 weeks base level training
The plan focuses on improving vo2max, endurance, and power. A core workout three times a week improves balance, handling, endurance and power.
